perception in many instances. with that being said, do i want to use weapons that are only about pain compliance or use a weapon system that is about controlling and stopping that person from doing any further aggressive behavior than what they are doing and our policy is if you look at the policy. it is not about using the policy against someone who is simply non-compliant. that would be a violation of the policy. it is about using potentially that weapon system against someone who is active, state of aggression towards the officers and or the public themselves. so, with that said, it is a weapon system that controls as opposed to uses pain as a means of acquiring compliance. >> i have a couple of follow ups, but i know that the chair has a question. >> actually this probably dove tails with his questions, but for all of us to really understand, could you explain how electronic controlled weapon, a taser works? >> it works by simply, capturing the electrical systems within your muscles and basically constricting your muscles. >> but mechanically, you fire something? >> there are two

that today is a very significant day for many of us here at the county transportation authority for a couple of our commissioners it will be the last county transportation authority meeting, commissioners elsbernd and commissioner olague. and as chair of the authority i want to take this opportunity to thank them for their service. for their contributions, their many, many ways in which each one of them has contributed in terms of not only the individual projects that have taken place in their district, but city-wide, and i know that we will miss them and the authority will not be the same without their presence. so i just want to take the opportunity to thank them for their service. and we hope that they continued to be involved. i also note that as many of you have heard, or read in the press, we have been informed by current executive director that he will be retiring, effective at the end of this year. and one of the items that we have on the agenda today is a discussion about the transition in light of that retirement. and we look forward to hearing from members of this commission as to

by this project we know this because the licenses that were offered to us, did have time limit and is so we know that the city that the agency does not require perpetual easements and again by providing an offer that excuse me by presenting resolutions that do not seek to accommodate the greatest public good and least private injury the resolutions are not valid and the could a kriivel code of civil procedure precludes the board from passing any kind of resolution based on sequentially invalid license that is have been set for the in the exhibit a resolution and finally, the city has failed to offer just compensation. the appraisal that was submitted to the property owners with respect to these two properties those appraisals are based on temp license not perpetual easiment and is therefore inadequate and in addition, the appraisal did not adequately consider the impact on a property concern severance damages that would occurring temporarily during construction work and then reduced access and these are set forth in the snags we have provide and had so i therefore ask the board deny these resol
came up for us to learn more about this, we took it. for about 6 months we surveyed 300 tenants who lived in sro's and apartments in all 11 districts to find out how much second hand smoke affected them and if they would be interested in a disclosure policy. we found 57 percent of tenants had neighbors who smoke in their units and of those people, 59 percent reported secondhand smoke drifts in their apartment. they reported having someone in their unit whose illness was made worse by secondhand smoke. many people didn't have enough information to make an informed decision about where they were moving. only 40 percent reported knowing when they moved in and 72 percent said they would want to know. this legislation will do three things, owners must include the smoking designation of the unit in residential vacancy unit and to any applicant prior to entering into a lease agreement. owners must provide a list to rental applicants who are offered the unit showing the designation of all units in the building that are smoking optional and the list will be updated and available to all te
appeals -- ceqa appeals come before us, and you sometimes arguments about the merits of the project get mixed in, and that may be because that's the only way for the item to come to us. and whether -- agree or disagree with it but in 1999 the voters gave the policy authority over these kinds of issues to the mta board of directors and took that authority away from the board of supervisors. so i'm hearing, both in the written submissions and also in what you're saying today, rernss references to what's good or bad engineering, what's a better route or a worse route, references to disability access, to fire safety. those are all very legitimate and important policy considerations to weigh and coming up with any plan. but how should we think about this distinction between what is the right policy decision, which is not within our power, versus whether this project was categorically exempt or not from ceqa. because i think it's really important for us, regardless of what anyone's personal opinions are, to keep that distinction. >> yeah. well, let me cut to the chase with that and say that t
words from staff. echoing much of what you said, but i think that most of us in this room cannot think of the authority without thinking of jose, and this is a moe men thank yous occasion and it has not been one of holding steady on a well established institution, it is one to unwavering dedication to professionalism and plain old blood sweat and tears. he has steadfastly helped to grow this organization and create and implement a vision for san francisco. which we are realizing today. and as of one of you just said, it is truly a testament that he has such an amazing group of people that are so talented and dedicated to a t to the authority's mission and trying to do the right thing in the city and we truly appreciate the support of this board and prior boards of making this happen. this is really like a celebration of the authority and i would like to take one quick minute to highlights the things that have happened in the past 12 months and completely amazing. >> when weiss came back to the organization as executive director in 2001, within two weeks he had inserted himself into the
intersection level of service, as much as i would like us to get away from using that metric, i do understand that metric and this project has thoroughly looked at that. therefore, there is no impact on transit, the 16x. the impacts on pedestrians is only positive. so there's no significant environmental impact there. and the impacts on bicycles is only positive. so there's no significant impact there. some of the other issues raised were noise. that struck me as kind of interesting. in my own understanding of transportation noise, the faster you go, the noisier it gets. so by calming and slowing traffic, you have less noise. the safety issue, slower traffic is safer. so the air quality issue struck me. this is a conundrum in regional planning. the general direction, and particularly with ceqa, is to look at the regional air quality and the regional greenhouse gas emissions. the way you do that is to reduce the vehicle miles traveled. this is the kind of project that gets you to your 20% most -- >> good evening, supervisors. my name is morgan fits gibbons here on behalf of the wig party. we w
glasses you're using. proposition a, you know, we just want to make sure that you, the board members, particularly the new board members when they do come in, really step up to the plate, and have the agency conduct business for the residents of this city like they're supposed to be. no one's paying attention to prop a, transit first. no one. so when we take that into context, this system should be really -- yeah. mr. elsbernd brung up prop g but did it affect anything? i don't know. we have to look at those numbers today because in two weeks they're talking about cutting service to your constituents in the outer neighborhoods. yet take care of the visitors that's coming to shop in union square but what about the individuals in the outer neighborhoods. service is going to be affected deeply with these cuts. so we just ask for you and we are trying to work with the agency as a partnership, what we're asking for the support of the board as well. let's really identify the serious problems of the agency, and the bureaucratic -- the misspending of all the funds that they have. can we do t
